LONELY

We photograph the present for the scrapbooks of the past

We’re on our way to Heaven with a heart that beats so fast

We’re learning to be patient with a different point of view

You don’t argue with an angel if you know what’s good for you

 

Somebody is laughing

A moment is frozen in space

Someone’s photographing

The eyes of the world in a face

 

Hey! Hey! You know what they say  

Okay you’re finding a way

Who cares what happened before

Lonely doesn’t live here anymore

Lonely doesn’t live here anymore

Lonely doesn’t live here anymore

Lonely doesn’t live here anymore

 

 

This picture’s been in wallets. It was taken here in town,

Outside of Café Cowards. Someone wrote the whole thing down

The heavens cracked wide open and the world became a lake

Then someone’s heart got broken. It was more than they could take

 

Somebody is laughing

A moment is frozen in space

Someone’s photographing

The eyes of the world in a face

 

Hey! Hey! You know what they say  

Okay you’re finding a way

Who cares what happened before

Lonely doesn’t live here anymore

Lonely doesn’t live here anymore

Lonely doesn’t live here anymore

Lonely doesn’t live here anymore
